iPhone users have been targeted by hackers.
Berlin: The iPhone’s ‘AirDrop’ feature makes it easy to share photos and videos between Apple’s various devices, but now cybersecurity experts have bad news about this feature.
Experts at the University of Technasheim in Germany say that the AirDrop feature makes it easy to hack iPhones, and because of this feature, about one and a half billion iPhone users are targeted by hackers.
According to experts, in order to hack an iPhone via AirDrop, hackers only need a device connected to Wi-Fi and physical proximity from the target device. In this way, hackers can hack not only iPhones but also Apple laptops and other devices and find out the user’s phone number and email. Experts have also developed a solution to this problem. Experts have dubbed it ‘Private Drop.’ He said that until Apple fixes the bug in AirDrop, Apple users should use PrivateDrop.
